Artist Alison Jackson is marking Charles III’s coronation by hosting a mischievous royal exhibition of photographs at a Fitzrovia gallery this month.

The show will explore private moments of the royal family through Jackson’s trademark tongue-in-cheek photography, which has dismantled the cult of celebrity for over two decades.

The Crown offers a whimsical view of the third Carolean age with imagined, behind-the-scenes private moments.

“Join me in dismantling the cult of celebrity and exploring the pageantry surrounding the coronation weekend with a devilishly frank and humorous twist,” says Jackson.

The Crown by Alison Jackson is open from 10am to 6pm, Monday to Saturday, and continues until 27 May 2023 at Grove Gallery, 156 New Cavendish Street, London, W1W 6YW.
